A person can only take so much before they just lose it. In the workplace, that kind of feeling can build for months or years, but that employee eventually has to get their feelings out.
Employees ideally want to feel heard at their workplaces. They might have great suggestions, but when they pose it to their bosses, their ideas are waved away. Others request raises, only to be snidely denied or lowballed into accepting a raise that will barely make a dent. Offering raises is probably not something any employer wants to do necessarily, but great managers know that people work for money. They’ll save money by having good employee retention rates—just think how much more money it is to hire and onboard someone! Instead, they could just cough up a little extra money and leave their employee feeling valued and happy.
These people each had unique experiences with quitting their jobs in dramatic fashions. Some told their bosses to go kick sand, using much more vulgar language. Others threw their uniforms at their bosses! These people shared their stories in a r/askreddit thread, and a lot of them have happy endings. It seems like once these people realized how poorly their company was treating them, they accepted jobs that were a better fit for them.
After you read these tales, read about the upstairs neighbor who thought of the dumbest possible solution to a flooding sink.
